After my visit to 8 Street at Westfield Garden City “Fresh Food Precinct” and dropping by at Grill n Bao for lunch (we’re regulars now), I was inspired to make my own Gua Bao but with a Filipino twist put into it.  This Pork Adobo Bun (Pork Adobo Gua Bao) of mine is the bomb!  You have to make it, seriously… it is so easy.

Have you been to Westfield Garden City lately?  Westfield Garden City just had a $400m redevelopment and you should see what they have done.  If you haven’t checked the place yet…you’re missing out on a wonderful revamped fresh food precinct with new specialty stores plus of course your regular supermarkets (Coles, Woolworths and Aldi).
I was invited to check out their fresh food precinct and was very pleased with what I saw.

I like the open layout design of Spuds & Plums (green grocer).  It creates this market style ambience and allows you to gain access at any point around the shop whether you’re just going to browse their fresh produce or buy something.  My bargain find was 1/2 head of cabbage for only 0.59¢ !

Sunlit has a very spacious store to display their wares.  I love their tea section with different teapots adorning its elaborate bookcase entrance.  Products are neatly stacked and priced reasonably.  My bargain find was 2 doz. chicken eggs for $3 !

Top Chop offers fresh nicely packaged meats and they have a hot section where you can buy ready-to-eat Roast Chickens and hot meals/snacks.

I love Breadtop… with their vast assorted breads on display.  You can pick your own baked favourites in the display cabinets using their tongs and trays.

Having the three major supermarkets under one roof is a big bonus for me as I love circling the specials on their weekly catalogues and going to the shops to buy the discounted products that our household uses around the house.

There are more shops opening soon around the vicinity of Westfield Garden City “Fresh Food Precinct” and when all of these shops are open, this area will be one of the busiest portions of the shopping centre.

As 8 Street was just opposite Spuds & Plums we had our afternoon snack at Grill n Bao.  The concept of a hawker style Asian cuisine dining precinct inspired me to put my own twist on Mr H’s favourite Pork Belly Gua Bao for the rest of the TRIBE to try at home.  So armed with a new recipe idea we came back to the fresh food area and bought all the ingredients I needed.

What came out on that inspiration was a Filipino twist on the Grill n Bao’s Grilled Pork Belly Burger which I will call… Pork Adobo Buns !

I hope you give this recipe a try…{click here for Busog! Sarap! Pork Adobo Buns recipe}



F.Y.IThank you to Nuffnang and Westfield Garden City for the opportunity of doing this sponsored post.  I truly enjoyed making the Pork Adobo Buns recipe inspired by Grill n Bao and revisiting the place again as Westfield Garden City Shopping Centre is one of our regular places to shop around.


It has been along time since I have posted a Filipino Recipe….so to make amends, here’s a simple recipe for Ginataang Tambakol Steak (Tuna Steak cooked in Coconut Milk).  I’ve added a few kamias to create a small souring effect on the overall taste of the sauce.  I find that this dish is quite good  when you break up the tuna steak and tossed in cooked pasta or in a mix salad and use the sauce as the dressing. I do hope you give this Busog! Sarap! recipe a try!


This post has been long overdue is an understatement…. I do apologize to Nando’s for not posting this recipe last year as I was so pre occupied with the TRIBE’s family affairs.
